Welcome to week 6 of the
with Bloggers Mary Brown, Karen M. Owen, Karen Kenyon, Sheryl Hagan-Booth and yours truly!


This week is my first Halloween cozy mystery pick
by Daryl Wood Gerber

3rd in nationally bestselling Cookbook Nook Mystery series
Halloween in Crystal Cove, California, is a big deal, involving a spooky soiree where the Winsome Witches, a fund-raising group, gather to open up their purse strings and trade superstitions. But party magicians, fortune-tellers, and herbalists are only the beginning of this recipe for disaster...

Jenna Hart has packed The Cookbook Nook chock-full of everything from ghostly texts to witchy potions in anticipation of the annual fund-raiser luncheon. But there's one unexpected addition to the menu: murder.

When the Head Priestess of the Winsome Witches is found dead under mysterious circumstances, there's no logical answer and plenty of blame to go around. With her aunt, Vera, unable to call on her ability to foresee the future, Jenna will have to use more than just sleight of hand and a few magic tricks to conjure up the truth...

Nope Nope Nope! 
I'd never run away from reading
or any book in the Cookbook Nook Mysteries!

 something wicked this way comes to the town of Crystal Cove, California. Witches! Okay, so they're not wicked, just the harmless Winsome Witches. But are they all harmless? After all, there has been a murder.

This Halloween themed addition to the Cookbook Nook Mysteries is packed with lovable characters, mystery, mayhem, and recipes! How can you go wrong with a series that has a bookstore that sells mostly cookbooks?

This bewitching third installment of one of my all time favorite series, will cast a spell on you just as it did on me. It's a Wiccan good time

  1. Thanks for sharing. Sounds like a great book and one I am going to have to read.

  2. I have not read that book or series! Great choice! Also lovely tea photo of my tea party!

  3. I love the title "Stirring the Plot". Sounds like a good mystery.

  4. Stirring the Plot sounds like my kind of book...I mean...WITCHES and MAGIC! I'm all in. Great review Lisa, as always. Would you call this a paracozy?

    1. Hey, Sheryl. No. Not a paracozy at all. Just a fun Halloween slant on a story in this series.
